Mimi Shapiro needs to get away. From New York City, from NYU. And from the professor who let things go too far. So when her artist father, Marc, offers his cottage in a remote part of Canada, she gladly hops in her Mini Cooper and drives north. Way up north.

The little house is fairy-tale quaint, and the key is hidden right where her dad said it would be, so she's shocked to find someone already living there—Jay, a young musician, who is equally startled to meet Mimi and immediately accuses her of being the one who's been leaving strange and threatening tokens for him: a dead bird, a snake skin, a cricket soundtrack imbedded in his latest composition. But Mimi has just arrived, so who is responsible? And more alarmingly, what does the intruder want?

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Beth | 2/18/2014

    " Not a bad read, but not exactly within my field of interests- which is why I'll refrain from saying more about it, knowing any review I could possibly write would be biased. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eva Mitnick | 2/13/2014

    " I thought this was going to be a creepy sort of thriller but it was remarkably lacking in suspense or mystery. The dynamics between the various offspring of Mr. Wild Oats Artist was interesting but not as fleshed out as I could have hoped. A mildly interesting read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joanne | 1/24/2014

    " I am experimenting with various genres that I am not familiar with, including YA, science fiction and inspirational fiction. So this pick was a new YA book that was just OK. It stretched the imagination a bit but had interesting characters, locale and plot development. Not as fast paced and suspenseful as I had expected. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephieshaver | 1/22/2014

    " Never finished it. Barely got through 100 pages. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiffany | 1/12/2014

    " I'm giving this book 3 stars because it was well enough but it was predictable, thus 3 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/8/2014

    " This is not your typical mystery, but I couldn't help read it to see how the characters lives were intertwined and who was responsible for the strange things happening at the house on the snye. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kayla | 12/7/2013

    " A lot of swearing but the last 20pages were the best! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marina | 11/23/2013

    " This book was CRAZY! Unexpected stuff coming atchya! Awesome read, with a good ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gwen the Librarian | 11/8/2013

    " Utterly creepy and suspenseful. Totally unique idea. Fantastic writing and characterizations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 11/5/2013

    " Strange and creepy. But I think that is how it was intended, so it hits the mark. Not my favorite (I really rather disliked Mimi, frankly) but I think it will really appeal to some readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 So Yi | 10/27/2013

    " AHHHHHHH!!!!!!! IT'S SOOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!! A TOTALLY MUST READ BOOK!!!!!!! EEEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane Brant | 10/11/2013

    " A little far-fetched overall, too much angst and unexplained turn-of-events. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cath | 7/3/2013

    " Read this book in a day. It did drag in places, but was an interesting combination of suspense and family drama. I found myself turning pages wanting to know what happened in the end. I enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shauna | 1/23/2013

    " This book looked like it would be a great suspense novel, but it fell a bit flat. It had potential, but I felt like it gave away too much too soon so that by the time I reached the end there just weren't that many surprises. I was also put off by how much swearing there was. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yri | 7/13/2011

    " Very good, totally unexpected ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rabeea | 4/21/2011

    " My first scary book...I thought it was pretty good... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theo | 4/14/2011

    " This book was really cool. It was a bit boring but when the characters finally came into contact with each other it got better. Cramer is a total stalker and creeper. He was a weird character, I mean 20 years old and he was literally STALKING Mimi. FREAK. Come on, get a life dude. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan | 2/11/2011

    " This book was great!! It is a mystery. The only thing bad about it was you could predict the what would happen next. It is still good or else I would not have finished it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 2/6/2011

    " This was an interesting novel, and the ending was nothing that I expected. I could not put this book down, literally sat there and read this instead of doign anything else. Fabulous read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swimmergirl | 1/21/2011

    " i still think this book had a lot of cussing and violence, but I think it was a good book, and I would recomend it to high school mystery fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bryn | 1/20/2011

    " I honestly expected more from this book. The characters were underdeveloped, the plot line stilted, the writing immature. This book had more potential than it realized. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alpha | 1/5/2011

    " Wow. I loved it. I never thought a book would draw me in so fast. It was a little predictable but oh so worth it. I just couldn't put it down.
    Though I will say it was definitely twisted. XD Can't wait to read it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Theomanic | 1/4/2011

    " Non-traditional take on a teen suspense novel. Not too deep, but the characters were interesting enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 1/3/2011

    " This was not really as creepy as it seemed. Plus I assumed it was supernatural, but it wasn't. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 12/11/2010

    " this creeped me out a bit... "
